"In a prior show, I believe, Nancy said that 'I do not say I am a woman, but I live as a woman.' This confused me. Keeping the gender/sex difference in mind, I would say I am a woman because I have embraced the feminine and live my life as a woman (gender). I would also say that I am not completely a female (sex). Could you comment?"
